While the dollar continues to plummet, we’re constantly getting hit with “lousy economy” charges (exchange rates, duties, brokerage, etc…). We had the opportunity to take a trip to Indianapolis in December to talk to our suppliers and work out some better rates and make things more affordable for you, the consumer. It goes without saying that the American manufacturer knows little to nothing about importing costs and struggles for Canadian companies but the look on their faces while we explained our predicament (particularly with the incredibly weak Canadian Dollar), was very telling and priceless! The common question we heard was along the lines of “how can we get you guys to sell more of our product?” The common answer “lower your costs”.
We managed to get through to several of our manufacturers and worked out some better pricing and procedures for importing components into Canada so this year, we’ve been working on making our pricing even lower than it has been in the past. There are certain manufacturers who we are able to match or beat regular advertised pricing almost 100% of the time. Those companies are listed in the banner above. We’ve also introduced FREE UPS GROUND SHIPPINGwithin Canada!
We do have some decent pricing for many other manufacturers as well so if you’re looking for anything in particular, please give us a chance to price them out for you to meet or beat pricing.
We’ve also linked our Webstore to our Facebook page so you can shop while you update yourself to the latest minion posts!
